for former spokesperson for president george w. bush and steve camerota, center for immigration studies. what do you think about this idea that immigration reform would help reduce the deficit. do you buy that? >> you know, ieally don't. not under president obama and his sort of spend habits. but what i do think is goi to happen when you look at congress, they're going to view this immigration reform package and figure out a way, they will need to figure out a way to make it as revenue neutral as possible or reduce deficits. there will be a cost associated with implementing any form of this immigration reform. in 2006 we saw the cbo came out saying that the plan that president bush had proposed was going to basically raise e deficit $18 billion. but again, there will be questions that need to be hammered out with the deils of an immigration reform package. melissa: christian, it is so hard to quantify what this really means. if you make more immigrants legal, that is more stress on the system. they will use more social services but it is also a higher tax base. how do you think it net as it n

,000 in damages. fox news is following the story, steve, give us the latest here. >> water front mansion, worth $2.5 million where a brazil nan national squatted with seven other people for the past two months. now, 1 p.m. yesterday, police swarmed the scene here, looking for him, who calls himself loki boy on social media. didn't find him, but they found trash, which they pulled out. they have since changed the locks. the neighbors here extremely concerned about having a squatter in their tony naind. some hired their own private security. one woman offered to buy the house away from bank of america, the owner, just to get rid of the squatter. they say now that the situation appears to have been resolved. they are experiences some real relief. >> i think we'll sleep better. i feel like the neighborhood will be quieter, eventually, maybe not today, but maybe tomorrow. >> we're finally relieved we're going to go back to normal. >> as far as the squatter, himself, loki boy, it's not clear where he is. police are not looking for him, and, currently, there's no warrant out for his arrest. melissa: you
being brought in, getting the call steve rattner and your first reaction was what? >> my first reaction was no. i know nothing about cars. i can drive one. i can start one and drive and that's it. liz: why were you the right guy for what is now indelibly marked in our history at a time when general motors almost went entirely under and disappeared? >> i'm not sure i was the right guy but it worked out okay. so maybe i was. but i had worked at a big company. a unionized company. he had worked there a long time. gm was a big company. i knew something about organizations and people. so maybe that's why i got the call. liz: you also two into your early history. that was you grew up thinking you would work for the railroads just like your dad. >> i did. liz: it has been an interesting journey certainly to become one of the top corporate leaders in a free market world and therefore, why did you go along with a government bailout which is the antithesis letting the free market take over in this case? >> well, for a couple reasons. my family had grown up with gm cars. my first car was a chevrol

post steve jobs is one thing. but i think that they are doing fine. they did miss a bunch of quarters. where einhorn's really right is they are anti-shareholder friendly. i mean, if the ultimate thing that comes out on the proxy is we are against something that was proposed that is reasonable, shareholder friendly, that what does that say? what does the statement say? why isn't the dividend bigger? why isn't the buy back bigger? most companies would not tolerate the treasury stance of apple. they would just say it's not good enough. and i think einhorn's right on that. solution, all i can tell you is when you discuss with a company an idea and then you see a proxy, the proxy that your idea is wrong, given the fact that they have used cash, i don't know, intellectually, apple's position can't be defended. >> trying to head him off at the pass. >> right. right. >> doesn't it say that whatever their reason is for saving this money, they haven't communicated it effectively? >> thank you. >> right? >> yes. there must be a reason. >> but say it. say, okay, look, we are looking at developing

're going to be ham strung. let's see what's on tap. tom hashingen is vacating his seat. steve king may end up being his replacement. steve king, who coined -- not coined, but uses, you know, with great impugnty the term anchor baby. saxby chambliss is leaving. john d. rockefeller leaving in west virginia. the leading goper is shelly -- murdock, again, we have this example time and time again the seat is offered up. the arch conservatives get their guy, and then maybe ashley judd or someone like her, some democrat from who, what, where, when, how comes in and ends up winning the seat. >> charlize theron is -- >> from south africa. >> oh, sorry. >> there needs to be a reconciliation here, right? as the party becomes more -- the battle lines are drawn with firmer and firmer markers, if you will, how do you build the tent big enough? >> if every republican who looks toward the center and we just have a crazy right, this is not good for our democracy. i mean, that's the bottom line with those constituents. >> iran, you're a betting woman, aren't you? >> could be. >> you could be for this moment
want to -- >> whoa. >> what just happened. >> steve, did you do that? >> momentum's been completely changed now. >> momentum! it's completely messed up now. >> i hope there are no lip readers because toure's about to lose it. >> i'm out of here. >> yeah. so there was the blackout which was obviously bizarre and i think gave rise to potentially some great harbaugh family practical jokes in the family like at the first family dinner since the super bowl, jack goes and cuts the power as a joke. love that. >> light the producers just did. >> exactly. great guys. thanks. but it also made me think of -- it was like a super bowl brought by stefan. it has everything. brothers. beyonce. blackouts. ray lewis. >> destiny's child. >> right? yes yes yes yes yes. it was so great and weird. but all in all interesting. something to watch i think every, you know, every quarter. >> something for everyone. >> something weird happened. >> there was, those are those memories and thought there was one other professional sports team with a blackout before. >> giants. >> no. it was the boston bruins and th
's followed the dictum suggested by the late founder steve jobs. if you produce the best products which arguably apple has done, everything takes care of itself. that's something that's resonated throughout much of steve jobs' biography about walter isaacson. it's a bedrock principle of apple itself. i have to admit i have grasped about apple lately. incredibly low interest rates, that keeps it from earning a decent return for doing nothing at the moment as you used to be able to for so long. i have said that the cash itself has gone from being a positive at a time when so many companies have stretched balance sheets to a negative as it generates a small return. i have suggested they put some of the cash to work, buying the growth that many feel has been lost. perhaps buying twitter to be more moving aggressively into the social media space. or netflix for home entertainment. or even somewhat facetiously purchase amazon, with its itunes-like offers. all that said i never thought in a million years that somehow apple's become a bad actor because of its conservative ways of handling its b
'hara with phoenix partners group and on the fundamental side steve cortes with vercruysse. j.c., which about the charts, which indices or which sector would you prefer right now? >> well, bill, i like all equities right now, small, medium and large. a lot of people say equities have gone too far too fast and they are overbought. we remaybe in a rights wedge formation and until you break lower you have to be long. it does not pay to bet against this rally. it continues higher. what's better than the s&p? well, right now small caps are better than the s&p. small caps already broke out of a multi-year ascending triangle, and basically what that is, it's heavy, heavy resistance that was recently penetrated in the 850, 860 area for the russell 2000. strong resistance is a very strong asset to break through, and i don't want to stand in front of this bullet train. i think the momentum is positive and trends are positive and small caps will take us higher. >> steve? >> j.c. in, general the bigger guys one and i think the bigger guy will win in the bat of the index. i don't like the jpmorgan call fo
where congress steve king could win the republican primary but lose the general. if you look at just iowa how brutal can it get there? >> i think it could get very brutal. who is karl rove kidding in many ways? this is who the republican party is today. this is who they are. todd akin, right, he was no outsider. he was the republican endorsed candidate. sharon engel in nevada, christine o'donnell in delaware. they were the republican's choice candidate. so karl rove pretending to be holy than thou i don't think we ought to fall for it. >> jennifer: jason on the subject of republican primaries today, south carolina republican state senator lee bright told row call that he is leaning towards a challenge against republican lindsay graham. do you expect that graham will end up tacking even further to the right? because he certainly has tacked to the right over the past couple of years. >> this challenge is an absolute nut case. lindsay graham he'll do the old john lovett thing, i can't believe i'm losing to this guy. lee bright wants to have south carolina mint their ow
. will any of them work? i'm steve usdin. welcome to "biocentury this week"." >>> your trusted source for biotechnology, information and analysis, "biocentury this week." >>> congress has postponed the debt ceiling crisis. now the focus in washington has swung back to budgets and deficits. the nation is heading toward budget sequestration. for medicare this means a 2% spending cut. but that's just a downpayment. any serious attempt to tackle the deficit must curb the increase in medicare and medicaid spending. last week a kaiser family foundation report listed 150 ideas to reduce medicare spending. the problem is almost all of
